We recently experienced a true "trip of a lifetime" when we spent three weeks traveling the South Island of New Zealand in February. We couldn't have done it without the awesome team at PlanitNZ! Matthew spent time getting to know us - how we like to travel, what was important to us to see, etc - and then proposed an itinerary that punched all of our buttons! He helped us plan the perfect itinerary, where we saw enough of the different aspects of NZ - beaches, rainforest, towns, mountains - but without spending ridiculous amounts of time in the car. And the car time we had was always interesting and really just another fun part of the trip. We did have a couple glitches during our visit. One of our own making (be sure to take your drivers license if you plan to rent a car, even if you have an international license which you don't really need) and the other Cyclone Gita. In both situations, Matthew and his team were quick to respond and help us figure out how to proceed. Both "crises" ended up just adding a little more color to our travel stories! In addition to planning our itinerary the PlanitNZ team helped us reserve our rental car (and then cancel & refund that car when we messed up and then find us another rental car starting from a different town 5 days later) as well as a couple of excursions. All the arrangements were handled beautifully, with clear instructions on how to execute once we were in NZ. Really, using PlanitNZ was one of the best decisions we made about the entire trip. They know their stuff, are easy to work with and really care about their travellers! Thanks PlanitNZ for ensuring that our trip was every bit as amazing as we had imagined it would be!!

Recently arrived back from a trip to New Zealand on both the North and South Island. The team with PlanitNZ was incredibly helpful for two recent college graduates that had never planned a trip out of the country before. Responses were always very prompt and informative and we worked with Matt quite a bit. He was incredibly patient with answering all of our questions and providing his personal advice (even when we asked a million questions at times) and even provided feedback on a rough itinerary my partner and I had sketched out by telling us what would work and what things he thought would be impossible to try to cover in our time frame. Helpful yet realistic -- we definitely started off with more than we would have been able to accomplish, which Matt was great at helping us sort out. We booked our rental through them as well and from my observations (I was in NZ teaching for 3 months before my partner and I took this trip) the prices we paid for a rental seemed very reasonable.
